This paper discusses how, in spite of significant under reporting of the role of Jewish women within the creation, formation, and continuance of the Jewish community, these persons are highly active both within the formalized religious structure and the informal socio-cultural communities affiliated with a given synagogue. This paper demonstrates the impact and the role of the woman within the Jewish communities in North America, with an emphasis on the Conservative Jewish community and comparing and contrasting differences between Jewish women within Canada and North America.

From the Paper:

"Women within the Jewish community are accorded rights and privileges that are rarely found within other theologically-oriented communities, such as a matrilineal line of integration into the faith and the ability to own property and acquire protection under the sanctity of law. Yet despite these obvious distinctions from the majority of the world's major religions, women within the Jewish community tend to face overt and understated forms of segregation in terms of the interpretation of their actions. Through extension, this understatement of their role in the community can be interpreted as purposeful or accidental devaluation. "
